I hope you had a wonderful weekend and got to do things that you didn’t do before in your life. Today is going to be something I never did before. Well, maybe I have done it several times but it wasn’t shared on this blog. If you missed my previous post, I shared the first stage of this project. However, This is the final stage of “My first DIY gift” project. This will be my first gift ever since I started doing DIY projects.
It’s been a fun week working on this project and I spent more time on this than any other project. I wanted to make sure that this will be worth it. But that doesn’t mean I don’t work hard trying to make my previous ideas look nice. This is a special gift for an amazing person like I said, I met when I traveled here. I wanted to gift her something before I got this idea, haha but I was stuck on what to gift her.
She is an amazing person and probably worth much more than this. But I thought of this idea as an appreciation of her working hard and being so nice and kind to everyone. She did a warm welcome for us and helped us to communicate during our first month with everyone. Also, helped us to understand transportations and how to move around the city. Because it was the first time for us to be here. By the way, We are in Russia if you are confused haha.
the day before I left the house, I got brainstormed with so many ideas that I wanted to do after doing my old phone stand. Then, because I had to leave and was nervous as I was only thinking about the trip. I had to keep my ideas after the trip. Even though there was so much time to do better projects at home than here. I find myself being more creative here than when I was at home haha.
About the idea
Anyways, even when I was looking for good ideas to gift her I kept working on new projects as you can see if you explore the blog. I had to ask for some help from my brother for a good idea and he told me to get something nice that can be a decoration. But at that time, I was just settling in and haven’t started on doing these projects yet. After a while, when I did my uncle’s project, I thought it will be perfect if I do one for her and make it as good as I can. Let me tell you, I’m so happy that I did it and she loved it.
I was nervous the whole time and afraid of getting rejected haha. However, I was ready and prepared to face my fear and get rejected. Even my cousin said that she won’t like it and will throw it. On the other side, My younger brother agreed that it was good, but I still didn’t believe it until she saw it and liked it haha.
Before I start the second and final stage, I want to say to her and if you reading this, thank you for being an amazing person.
The letter of “My first DIY gift
I said earlier that I spent a lot of time on this to make sure that it’s good, this is what I meant. I already did letters a couple of times before, but I decided to make it stronger. Also, I forgot to take a picture of the finished look of the letter, but you will see it as you go on with the post. It wasn’t only made with papers.
However, it has the same meaning which indicates for whom the project will be, and I always pick the first letter. If you are familiar with Russia and its language, it has differences in letters and pronunciation from English. It also has a similarity in some words or letters. You might think what shown in the picture above is P. Which I agree that the look is the same as ‘P’, but it pronounces ‘R’. This means her name starts with ‘R’ and I had to do it in the Russian language haha.
The new item for “My First gift ever DIY gift” project
I’m not sure you noticed it, but this will not a tutorial post because its meant to be a gift. I will just present it to you guys and share my experience with doing my first gift ever. Anyways, I mentioned in my previous post that there will be two new items for this project.
I couldn’t think of a way to add a touch of love to the project than adding a flower and since its flower season haha, you know. This is how I got the idea, I was sure that it will be as good as this. Since its a new item on the list, I thought I will mess things up. Because there is nothing works from the first time for me lol.
Another new item for “My first DIY gift” project
Something I never thought of doing until now is a butterfly haha. This is new to me and I was happy that I did well with one too. However, it took me a couple of tries to make it as good as the one shown in the picture above. Let me tell you, it was entertaining doing this and felt like more creative haha.
I picked the butterfly because I was thinking of something that resembles her and the only thing I got is this. She has a big and kind heart. The white part indication of the purity of her heart and kindness. Also, the color is her favorite blue color. As you can tell that everything was made with a purpose. The butterfly has big wings and beautiful look like she does.
The butterfly stand for My first DIY gift
I couldn’t think of something to hold the butterfly in the air than another stand for it. I thought of doing it white, but then I decided to just keep blue. This looked nicer than I imagined with white because that would’ve ruined the look of the butterfly when it’s hanging on it.
After this, I started getting things together and building the final picture. It was harder than you think because seeing something coming together as planned it was unbelievable for me haha. Because I always have to change things up and everything worked fine with this. I think because she brings good luck haha. Anyways, I will present with only pictures the process of making things together and will see you after that, enjoy!
Now, for the final look of the whole project and things coming together!
The whole “My first DIY gift” project coming together
I’m sorry but I had to pause for a little bit because the next part will be the last one and the final look of this gift. Let’s do drums, please. Drums… let me present to you guys my first ever gift I made since I started doing projects.
The final look of “My first DIY gift” project
BOOM! here we go, everyone! the final look you all have been waiting for. The new style decoration for a desk and a gift for a special person.
I don’t know if you noticed that, but the bases for the items were changed because I did them again as the old ones were messed up. I changed how I do them and it worked pretty well. Then, I decided to choose these, but it’s still not as perfect as I wanted.
Also, I thought of a good touch to the gift at the last minute. Which’s adding her name because she works hard and it would look good when people come to her desk and sees the decoration and from there, they can also recognize her name. That’s was the point of that haha.
It was really fun doing this and I’m so glad that she liked it in the end. I’m sure there will be more awesome ideas and gifts. What do you guys think of this idea and what’s your thoughts? I will be posting more fun stuff, please make sure subscribe to the blog or follow me through my social media. I wish you guys a wonderful day and enjoy your week.
